The Deltas Mirage Aerobatic Team trails white smoke in 'Delta' Formation, under a dark cloud at Williamtown in 1971. The Team, led by CO 77Squadron (Wg Cdr Bill Simmonds) in CO's ship A3-19, was practising for the imminent RAAF 50th Anniversary Air Displays. The Team had a Naming competition. I offered 'MATRAs' (Mirage Aerobatic Team RAAF Anniversary), which was too similar to a French missile makers name. The 'Deltas' won. (Mirage IIIs are flying deltas).

It must have been quite a loud display. Would have loved to see and hear them.
